A SELECTION OF MY FAVOURITE

Business Books

Naomi Simson

I love books and I love to share which are my favorites

Learnings from my favourite business books 

 Reading business books is a very important part of entrepreneurial success. A leader needs to be curious and interested. Whether people work in business, a startup, an enterprise or even the government to get ahead it is important to read business books.

I read many books, and one of the reasons why have have blog posts about business books is because I want to be able to refer to what I have learned again. In this section it is more than just business book review. I talk about how and why they impacted my businesses.

Podcasts are becoming increasingly important in how we consume information. It is such a great way to hear from an author and maybe get the condensed version of the book

In this range of blog posts I include business podcasts as well as business books.  I read (and listen) a lot – so the best way to stay connect is to subscribe to my Monday Espresso Newsletter so that you can get a weekly dose of inspiration.

Fun at Work – Playing outrageously

I say it is absolutely okay to have fun at work, in fact, why not play outrageously "Far better to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because...
